Tambour Embroidery Testimonials from Mooshi Couture Students


Hoping all is well with you in your part of the world!

It’s been a busy time for Mooshi Couture over the past few weeks. In February we held our first new level 1 tambour embroidery class and taught our regular student Nicky the chain stitch technique called Point de Beauvais.

Point de Beauvais is a form of crochet de Luneville but without the beads and sequins. The stitch integrates different coloured threads into a pattern, much like needle painting embroidery. Nicky learned the technical aspects of this form of embroidery so she can make beautiful hand embroidered dolls clothes. I can’t wait to see her work! Here’s her testimonial from our Facebook page.

And here’s Nicky learning the technique in class.

A student of Mooshi Couture's new Level 1 Tambour Embroidery classAt the beginning of March we held our first intensive tambour embroidery class for 2018. This class teaches the basic chain stitch and how to apply beads and sequins. Hannah is our youngest student to take our class and grasped the technique with ease. She is a keen sewer and hand embroiderer. We were very impressed with her abilities. Hannah is definitely a young talented artist to look out for! Here’s Hannah’s review of the day.
